Overpriced: $50,000 for a room with no form of cooling, not even a fan. Service: Must be a foreign word, because they don't know about it. Noise: The walls are made from crepe paper. Breakfast: You certainly don't get that. .5/10 = Do not stay.

This is a tight run and efficient hostel. If you are touring by bike or foot, they have a a secure garage to keep your bike. It is located ideally in Pablado, and you will find great dining spots only a few paces away. The staff is very helpful and can help you with travel plans. They keep a tight... More

And the staff was horrible (2 out of 3 were horrible), here is what happened to us: We arrived late at night and the receptionnist asked us to pay directly (fair enough),... More

I am a man that wanted to stay in a nice relaxing place to work while abroad. I have medical conditions and special needs. Not only did they not accommodate my needs but I was moved from bed to bed in order to suit their needs instead of my own. They did not consider my pain or movement. They didn't... More

Ended up having to come here after arriving late one night in Medellin and Casa Kiwi being booked... The room we got was big, but with no window opening outside, just windows that opened above the kitchen. Considering the weather outside wasn't that hot, the room was stuffy which therefore meant we had to open the window - this then... More

I stayed at Tamarindo as part of a group tour in May 2013 for 2 nights. The hostal is in a good location, close to Parque Lleras (full of restaurants, bars, cafes) and easy walking distance to the metro station. The room was clean, but our room had no exterior windows. The interior "window" faced the front desk of the... More

I stayed at the Tamarindo B&B on Carerra 33 for 5 nights. Natalie & Ramiro are both great! While Natalie speaks fluent English, Ramiro does not- but it's not a problem, coz he will help you out no matter what! The B&B is super clean, the rooms are big. My bathroom (room no. 2) was a little small and my... More

This made our trip. After the horrors of Cartagena we found a helpful lady by the name of Natalie who provided excellent service and even adjusted our trip for us to include a lovely town named Salento that we had previously not heard of! Cited close to the main square and with lots of local amenities. Highly recommended.

Private room on the street side with private bath. However, tidy and quiet. No problems, good help with activities. Well located next to a supermarket (small exito) and conveniently close to the Parque Lleras. It is a quiet place, so don't expect to have a party going on there. Which may be a good thing.

Feels like a prison. Ok to sleep so long as you have masacistic tendencies and enjoy hard beds.
